We could all use friends like Mahalia Jackson. She was the woman who prompted Martin Luther King Jr, in August 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial where he was giving his keynote address, from notes, to change course. “Tell them about the dream, Martin,” she prompted him.
The rest, to put it lightly, was history. What had Mahalia observed that day? How did she know that she had to speak out, to direct King to the message she knew was in his heart? It takes courage to both talk the talk and walk the walk in pursuit of our destinies. Think of the possibilities if we could inspire each other to remember our dreams.
